Posted in Leaves on the Poet Tree (Poems)


i don’t want to be the one who complains
but i really am tired of this rain
everywhere i turn everything is wet
my get up and go has no go and no get

my roof has suddenly sprung a leak
so someone to repair it i must seek
and hope the cost won’t leave me poor
(well i guess that’s what the tax refund is for)

i was going to try and sell some crafts today
but i was worried i’d get washed away
so now i’m inside and dry
with a bunch of crafts noone can buy

i haven’t mowed the lawn in forever and a day
the grass is so high i may have to pay
some local farmer to bring in his sheep
so they can be more useful than when i count them in sleep

i just want the sun to come back on outside
i’m tired of this game of seek and go hide
olly olly in come free i say
change these skies to blue from gray
